Virus/Hoax... NOT!

(45) Space Shuttle as Wide as two horse' behinds.

This is a version of the railroad gauge hoax, but this one is not based on the size of the carts, but two horses going through the tunnel to the shuttle factory in Utah.

When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory at Utah. The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site.

The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains. The SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses' behinds.

So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world's most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse's ass.

... and you thought being a HORSE'S ASS wasn't important!

Another cutie like the gauge of railroad tracks, but if you believe this one, let me send you some e-mail from Nigeria asking to open a bank account, put up some front money, so you could split millions of illegal dollars.
